Set in India and England, and starring two of the greatest living acting legends of our times - czar of the Indian film industry. Amitabh Bachchan and Academy Award Winner Sir Ben Kingsley - TEEN PATTI is an emotionally riveting and razor sharp thriller about greed, deception and glint feats of imagination. Relayed against the backdrop of modern India - made internationally beloved following the success of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. TEEN PATTI is one of the most fascinating new films to emerge from Asia, its theme and narrative are so profoundly particular to India that it is ultimately transcendent and therefore universal in its appeal.

Directed by Leena Yadav, TEEN PATTI also stars the dashing R. Madhavan, beautiful Raima Sen and launching Dhruv Ganesh, Shraddha Kapoor, Siddharth Kher, Saira Mohan, Vaibhav Talwar. Produced by Ambika A Hinduja under her banner Serendipity Films TEEN PATTI is all set to release on 26th February 2010.

Musical score of the film is given by duo Salim-Suleiman and lyrics are penned by Irfan Siddiqui.


Ben Kingsley who essays Perci Trachtenberg, widely regarded as the world's greatest living mathematician, meets Vankat, played by Amitabh Bachchan, a reclusive math genius from India, at a high rolling casino in London. Venkat tells Perci about an equation that could not only change the dialogue on mathematics forever, but one that has already left an indelible impression of guilt - for many painful reasons - on Venkat's life.

As turns out, the reclusive genius Venkat has cracked a theory that could redefine the principles of probability and randomness. However, as with all exceptional knowledge, his equation has its upside - as well as its dark underbelly. Aware that he is on the precipice of an extraordinary discovery, one that could find applications across various sciences, Venkat is encouraged to test his theory in the real world by professor Shantanu essayed by Madhavan (the super star from South India), an ambitious colleague of Venkat. Although Venkat has no interest in the money that could come from practicing his equation to crack TEEN PATTI, (a poker game) which could take in all the moolah, he eventually succumbs to Shantanu's charismatic persuasion. Soon, with the help of a few students, each with a complicated and singular fate of their own, they explore the addas (underground gambling dens) of wild Bombay, and a series of edge-of-your-seat escapades keep the film moving faster than a bullet.

But what starts out as an experiment between a charismatic young professor and an eccentric older one soon descends into a game neither of them can control. When their lives sink into maddening chaos, the greed and desperation that had fueled them on can no longer save them.

Perci understands that Venkat's theory in essence, questions the idea of what is random - and what is fated. A surprising and deeply moving redemption, imitated by Perci, closes this stupendously modern film that is as much about the private equations of honor and chance, and about knowledge that can change the world. But what if the prize of the knowledge is life itself?

Amitabh Bachchan as Venkat Subramaniam - The reclusive math genius is the heart of "TEEN PATTI". The discovery of his equation will change all other equations. He knows knowledge is priceless-but what if the price of knowledge is life itself?

Ben Kingsley as Perci Trachtenberg - The magician and maverick mathematician, the only man who can and does recognize Venkat's brilliance. A spectator to the game, he keeps the wheels of the plot turning.

R.Madhavan as Prof. Shantanu Biswas - Dashing and dangerous, his ambition and greed get in the way of clear thinking and morality. Forced to choose between love and lust, this decision will leave his life hanging in balance.

Saira Mohan as Mrs. K - Morally ambiguous and drop dead gorgeous, the film's femme fatale has more than a few tricks up her sleeve. Will moving up mean moving down what is in her path?

Raima Sen as Shivani Mukherjee - Shantanu's girlfriend, steady and kind, she discovers the hard way that a moral conscience is perhaps the most disastrous accessory a woman can own.

Shraddha Kapoor as Aparna Khanna - Quite to be determined, Apu as she's known by her gang, loses her innocence to a game of TEEN PATTI. Keen to succeed and make a name for herself, she learns that the betrayals in a game are nothing compared to the betrayals in love.

Siddharth Kher as Siddharth Bajaj - Also known as Sid, lead singer for the cool college band, a rebel without a cause, his restless mind is in apt match for the twists and turns of TEEN PATTI.

Vaibhav Talwar as Abbas Sheikh - Perversely rich and shy as an owl, he has to choose between his dynasty and the exhibition of TEEN PATTI. But he was born to play. He just didn't know it until it was too late.

Dhurv Ganesh as Bikram Ashwin Dhar - The small town boy, the great hope of his family. A key player of the team, his biggest lure is education - and the stable life that comes with a good degree. Lured into the jaws of greed by his needs, his life is littered with choices that will mark him forever
